Miley Cyrus continues to be untamable!

After the 20-year-old star took to Twitter and announced she had nabbed the top spot on Maxim’s Hot 100 list – before the magazine released the official news – she was asked to remove the Tweet, but Miley refused.

Access Hollywood caught up with the young beauty, who sported a white and black Valentino jumpsuit and Saint Laurent heels at the mag’s Hot 100 party in Hollywood on Wednesday, where she dished on her early announcement.

“If I’m nominated for something or if I win anything or if I [hear] anything my fans know before anyone tells me, I’m like, ‘Oh, it’s out.’ so I’m just allowed to [talk about it],” she explained.

Before the mag’s list was revealed (which also included Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ashley Tisdale, Kate Upton, Vanessa Hudgens and Elisha Cuthbert), Miley Tweeted, “Didn’t know this was coming out yet! I’m so happy to be #1 on Maxims HOT 100! #myfanskickass #dreamsdocometrue,” which caused a bit of a commotion.

“And then I got a call like three minutes later [asking], ‘Can you delete that Tweet?’” Miley told Access.

But millions of her fans had already seen the big news.

“Twelve million people already saw it.” She recalled. “I’m not gonna take it down.”
